The MAIRprogram seeks candidates who complement the broader Maxwell mission, have interdisciplinary interests and are interested in training future leaders in international affairs.


Applicants should have a Ph.D. in political science or a related field. Rank and salary commensurate with experience and professional accomplishments.


For consideration, candidates must complete an online faculty application (available at, job #074042) and attach: a letter of interest, a CV, a sample of professional writing, a statement of teaching philosophy, names and complete contact information for 3 references and evidence of quality teaching. Files may be no larger than 5MB, but you may submit an external link to a larger file if needed.


Applications will be reviewed as they arrive with full consideration given to those received by October 1. However, applications will be considered until the position is filled.
